The Honors College is eager to hear about your undergraduate experience. You will receive an email from the Honors College with a unique link to complete a brief survey which includes your RSVP for graduation and ticket request.

Each student will be guaranteed two guest tickets and can enter a random lottery (up to two additional tickets) if extra tickets are available. We will notify you by email by April 26, 2019 if a randomized lottery took place and you were able to have your additional ticket request fulfilled.
Accessibility accommodations for your family members are available on a limited basis. Please contact Jonathan Freifeld directly at email@example.com to discuss these accommodations.
